My morning started with my annual mammogram. Arghhh!
But my afternoon was wonderful. I drove to The Round Bobbin with my friend Linda to meet a new friend that I met on-line. Now I know that sounds kind of creepy, but here's the story.
Back on September 6th, the theme of my Wednesday's Wanderings was my birthday. Since I love cake, I made myself this whimsical cake.
I made one for my WW and one to give away on to celebrate.
Judi won the giveaway and I was so happy that she did.
She told me that it would be wonderful to win and it would cheer her up
because she lost her son on 9/11.
So I was so thrilled when she was chosen using a random number generator, but here's the rub.
I couldn't get in touch with her because she was a NO REPLY COMMENT BLOGGER!!!
I then pinned the piece to my design wall to enjoy myself.
Then a few weeks ago Judi's name surfaced as she left a comment on one of the computer lists to which I subscribe., and it said Judi from PA. Hey, I'm from PA! I e-mailed Judi and it turns out she lives not far from me. I was so excited and knew I had to get this piece to her.
What's better then to meet a new friend at a new quilt shop that is located halfway between us.
That's the story behind my meeting a stranger that I connected with on the internet.
Now that stranger is my friend. We have so much in common and couldn't stop talking.

|This section of the store is all about wool with lots of patterns by Gretchen Gibbons.|
If you like her book, Pennies From Heaven, you would have a field day here.

Yay for quilting and beautiful fabric and new friends.
Nothing could be better - especially after a mammogram.
